    I am trying to setup the DNS MX records needed so that all of our incoming mail is received through a spam filtering service. They have given me the MX records that I have to enter into ISPConfig.


    The first two are priority 10, the second two priority 20, etc.

    The problem is that ISPConfig will only allow me to enter one of the MX records. When I try to enter another MX record it gives me an error saying that "This or a similar MX Record does already exist in this zone."

    What do I need to do to enter these 6 MX records?

    Just use for the first priority 10, for the second priority 20 etc. It is no problem if the first two dont have the same priority and the same goes for the next two etc.

    The priority is just to define the order which mailservers should be tried next in case that the fisrt one fails.
